IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Custom Rollups in PAW set editor - used as filters

An important need from customers would be to create custom rollups in PAW.
The user would need to pick some elements in the set editor, create a rollup and use it as a filter, either in the selector widget or in a view.

    Hello dear Dev Team,

    can you tell us the current status for this topic?

    This function is very important for the business sector as you can create new consolidations on the fly and then give it to your colleagues for checking or further considerations!

    This function is existing in Perspectives.
    In Pax only partly at the surface; I tested now with the version 69 and I'm a bit confusing;

    in the tree pane in PAX you can see the elements of the new Subset (Subset in Subset), however, if you want to edit this or to use it, you only get the normal elements, but not the new Subset-C-Level-element.

    I hope, you can do it in the near future!

    Hoping for the best!
    Thank you in advance.

    Giving it a Push. Please Development, try to consider that Enhancement. It would make PAW outstanding. Its a highly missed feature in all Projects.

    When is this functionality to be expected?

    Even today you can use the calculation capability in a PA Workspace table to create a custom SUM or AVERAGE of several members and then move that new calculation to context.

    It the future you'll be able to create an Aggregate Consolidation that respects the cube rules and use that in the same way, but it will be done in the table, not the Set Editor initially.

    It would be usefull if users could see the rollup through DBR/DBRW functions
